Chrysler Unveils Anniversary Minivans

Chrysler today rolled out the 2009 Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan 25th Anniversary Editions, two special and limited versions of the popular minivans especially supposed to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the minivan.

The American manufacturer unveiled its first minivan in 1983 and since then, no less than 12 million units were sold in the whole world, Chrysler said in a press statement. Moreover, Chrysler currently owns more than 40 percent of the US minivan market, mostly thanks to very low fuel consumption combined with enhanced aerodynamics.

“Twenty-five years later, Chrysler and Dodge continue to dominate and innovate in this important segment,” said Deborah Meyer – Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer, Chrysler LLC. “With numerous minivan segment-exclusive features including Stow `n Go seating and storage, and the best fuel
economy rating, it is no surprise that Chrysler and Dodge minivans command more than 40 percent of the U.S. minivan market.”

The special-edition minivans come with new luxurious interiors customized with wood trim on the instrument panel and doors accent satin finishes. In terms of features, the standard equipment includes Chrysler's Stow 'n Go seating and storage system with heated front and second row seats plus 17-inch wheels and a special “25th Anniversary Edition” badge.

Chrysler says its current lineup of minivans is by far the most powerful in its segment, pointing to new technologies such as the Stow 'n Go system or its advanced in-car entertainment systems. Basically, the American carmaker aimed to create a “family room on wheels”, with entertainment features such as a nine-inch dual-DVD system with third-row seats monitors combined with uconnect studios SIRIUS Backseat TV.
